Posted: October 13, 2018 03:27:39With the drought in Maharashtra still fresh in the minds of the people of the state, it seems a good idea to go through the process of determining the delta water which the state has been providing for many years now.
The state government is currently facing the challenge of finding out how much water is actually in the reservoirs of the rivers and lakes in Maharashtra.
According to the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board, there are about 12 lakh cubic metres of water which is in the state’s reservoirs.
The water is divided into two categories, “pure water” which is water that has been treated to remove the harmful compounds and “unclean water” as a result of which the water has no traces of the chemicals.
The state government has allotted more than 1,000 acres of land for water management purposes.
According to the government, this water is supposed to be used for irrigation purposes.
However, there is no official data about the number of farmers in the country who have access to this water.
The Maharashtra government is also trying to understand how the drought has affected farmers in Maharashtra by collecting data on the drought severity and the irrigation requirements.
For instance, the drought is expected to be severe in the coming months and the farmers are likely to have to increase their water consumption.
The main problem for the state government in terms of water management is the availability of the reservoirs.
As per the National Greenhouse Gas (NGGS) data, Maharashtra is the second largest state in India in terms with 1,500MW of NRGGGSS (nitrogen per gram) of water.
However there are reports that the state is the worst in terms (of the total) of nitrate and phosphorous pollution due to this state.
The total nitrate pollution in the states has been recorded at about 9,000 tonnes of nitrous oxide per year.
The total phosphorus pollution in Maharashtra has been reported at about 300 tonnes per year and is the biggest state in terms.
There is also some indication that the pollution of phosphorous has been increasing in Maharashtra as well.
